Hello, my name is Charity! I am a clinical therapist who works with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families who are grappling with interpersonal wellbeing and life-cycle transitions. I certainly recognize that deciding to begin therapy can feel unnerving in terms of getting started, the commitment to treatment, and finding a suitable therapeutic fit.

What I Do

Prior to becoming a therapist, my clinical social work training has included public and charter elementary schools, an LGBTQ+ community center, the family shelter system, an out-patient substance clinic, and an out-patient trauma clinic. My training reflects work with diverse populations and a desire to support clients in achieving a better sense of self. These relational experiences have provided me with a multidimensional lens that has enlightened my insight into the challenges that many people face.

How I Help

My approach to therapy is collaborative, direct, and psychodynamic which simply means that together, we will explore your process of continued development of growth and personal resilience, self-discovery, healing, and the achievement of your goals. Theoretically, I draw from attachment, humanistic, family systems, person-centered, and trauma. I aim to provide an interactive, reflective, and supportive environment.

More About Me

I received my graduate education at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work, and am a New York State licensed psychotherapist trained in trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy (TB-CBT). I enjoy working with a diverse clientele and being an intricate part of their therapeutic journey.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading novels and psychology books. I also enjoy watching Bravo shows and British drama series. I am a sports fan, especially baseball and hockey. I find great delight in experiencing classical art and attending rock concerts. I love to travel, Paris, Tel Aviv, Cape Town, and my native hometown of New York City are a few of my favorite places. I am an avid runner and active volunteer for a variety of social causes.
